The art of this era wasn’t really about beauty or the sublime, it was about extreme greed and wealth. This is what makes the final room at the exhibition is particularly special, It’s just a collection of portraits. Not done for fame or riches, but for the sake of love, friendship and art. This exhibition, one of the first ever to explore Raphaël’s complete career.
With loans from the Louvre, National Gallery of Art, Washington, the Prado Museum, Uffizi Museum and the Vatican Museum this is an unprecedented opportunity to see the breadth of Raphael’s skill, creativity, and ingenuity.
